There’s a lot to be said about the colours we choose to surround ourselves with. From the colour we decorate our homes with to the cute outfits we choose each morning.
Certain colours can lift our moods (oh hello yellow), calm us down (blue, we’re looking at you) and even give us a helping hand from moving from one season to the next (oh, green grass we miss you in the winter!)
Colour can be used in so many areas of our lives to give us a boost, including in our beauty routine. If you’re more likely to reach for your neutral toned palette but want to add a touch of vibrancy to your everyday makeup, then you’re in the right place! Welcome to Colour Therapy with Superdrug!
All Eyes Are On...
It’s very easy to slip into a makeup rut, always reaching for those browns and beige eyeshadows or your trusty everyday lipstick. However, colourful eyeshadows really can suit everyone - you just need to find one that flatters your skin tone.
For example, green eyeshadows really pop on those with fair skin; purple and blues work beautifully with green eyes and yellow looks rather spectacular on pretty much everyone!
Pair your dazzling eye look with a slick of mascara and keep the rest of your makeup subtle to let your eyes be the star of the show.
Expressing your creativity (or your newfound energy for life) through colour doesn’t have to be confined to the makeup you wear on your face. Distinctive nails stand out from the crowd no matter the season we are in, so you can be as experimental as you like.
Instead of opting for one colour all over your nails, try just painting the tips or half at an angle and keeping the rest of your nails sheer for a manicure that’s mature, yet cute.
Colourful Hair, Don't Care...
Hair colour plays a huge part in our self-confidence and the smallest change can make a big difference! There are colours out there to suit everyone and if you’re not ready for an all-over change, then temporary colour dyes or extensions you can plait or clip in are a great way to go.
Keep your hairstyle looking modern by picking a new hue or adding a touch of colour that complements your skin tone. Don’t immediately reject ideas you originally thought may not work, give something new and go most importantly have fun!
Bright colours are exciting, they can help you tap into your creative side and allow you to experiment. So, whether it’s hair, makeup or nails make a colour switch this season and see how it makes you feel!
